Speech Reform Campaign

WOW! It’s like dodging a bullet. Just imagine a political campaign that broadcasts issue ads financed with unregulated donations? Think about it - permitting messages aired 60 days before a general election and 30 days before a primary election if they identify a federal candidate. What’s next - endorsement of specific issues? Aren’t you glad the Supreme Court has seen fit to convene their first special session in 27 years to pronounce from on high the allowable limits of free speech?

Voter Fraud Inevitable from Digital Elections

Technology changes, while human nature remains constant. Voter fraud is a repetitive part of the election experience. The lack of integrity in voting procedures, and more importantly the ballot counting process, causes the gravest concerns and casts substantial doubt on the legitimacy of the entire political system. Eight years ago in a different presidential cycle, the article 2004 - a time to go fishing, asks why do people tolerate this tainted and pseudo election process.

The Federal Government Declares War on the Nation

The recent debt limit congressional circus must be a new Twilight Zone episode written by a computerized program straight out of central casting. Rod Serling must be turning in his grave. A twenty-first century rewrite of his exceptional Seven Days in May screenplay is certainly in order, this time with a different ending. If there are any confused or co-opted worshipers of the federal government left, what more proof do you need that the bipartisan political criminal class is determined to destroy this nation? Not convinced that this assessment is correct; then you need remediable instruction in arithmetic. Increasing the spending with more borrowed money cannot reduce the debt.

Outsourcing, Nation Building and Open Borders

Outsourcing has been part of the globalist scheme for decades.  Sold under the misnomer of Free Trade the real intent is to drain a domestic self-sustaining economy from internal independence.  The stark reality of exporting living wage jobs and laying waste to crucial industrialized segments of an effective economy benefits only the transnational corporatoracy.  The lust for cheap labor drives every possible job overseas.  Real wage purchasing power sinks with each decade.  Replacement employment in new-fangled ventures and fields seldom provide a compatible level of inflationary adjusted remuneration.

How to Correct the Course of America

For every person, answering the question how to correct the course for America, there is a personal viewpoint that often varies upon circumstance. However, the underlying premise is that something is wrong that needs fixing. The couch potatoes drift through life voluntarily removing their involvement from the political process as much as possible. All one needs to upset this tranquility is to strike up a conversation with a stranger and dare bring up any political or social issue and ask for their opinion. Most seldom reflect upon specifics and even fewer are able to lay out a sound and cogent thought for righting the ship of state. Moreover, to the horror of any intelligent citizen, a very significant segment of the public is content with the status quo and sees no reason to change anything.

Reform Elections?

Now that the Senate has turned their attention to debate campaign finance reform, does anyone really think that the obvious solutions will be adopted? This really is a very simple issue, and the resolution of the problem should be clear to any serious observer. So what needs to be done?

Ten easy little steps that will greatly restore common sense and accountability to the political process. The 11th would be banning any member of the BAR from running for ANY office, as a condition to enter the legal profession. This one may not pass muster by the Supreme Court, since it seems that they already believe that only those, of their own, are qualified to read and understand what the law actually says. Now stop and think about it! What is wrong with any of these conditions? You say, it will never happen? But that's NOT the point. Why won't these improvements become reality? Who are the forces that refuse to clean out their own house? And why do you go through another election cycle, always voting for the lessor of two evils?

Elections bring out the worse in citizens

Words or phrases like democracy, self determination and the “will of the people” have a ring about them that appeal to the emotions of much of the electorate. How nice it would be to think that your one vote has meaning. When you cast your ballot, we are told, you are a responsible citizen. Well, is this a factual reality or is this nothing more than a fairy tale?

Edgar Steele and the National Defense Authorization Act

From the ACLU to hard-core traditional conservative pundits, opposition to the National Defense Authorization Act is united. Yet you hear almost nothing in the propaganda media about the final nail in the coffin of the Republic. Legalizing a draconian police state is in place. Burning the final copy of the Bill of Rights accomplished at last. Finally, the goal of inflicting universal fear in the minds of every American who still possesses the ability of critical thinking is now complete. Will anyone care about the interment of citizens in the entombment of maximum security prisons? The NDAA leaves no doubt. No one is safe.

Russia’s Sergey Lavrov “Clash of Civilizations”

Since the Western Press has directed their wrath at Vladimir Putin as their latest villain, while his approval rate soars to 88% in Russia, most Americans are not familiar with Foreign Minister of Russia Sergey Lavrov, much less know his public statements. Lavrov is a thoughtful contrast to the rigid and contemptuous foreign policy spokesmen’s from the Soviet era. It is well worth the time to investigate the actual sentiments that Lavrov has expressed throughout his diplomatic career. An insight of the mindset that underpins his thinking is revealed over two years ago, in the Voltaire Network, which published Sergey Lavrov’s account, On the Right Side of History and provided the following assessment.

K Street Lobbyists Extender Rules

A pivotal component of the process that manipulates the legislative cover that claims to be representative federalism is the consortium of influential pressure and bribe distributors that populate the lobbying capital of the planet, K Street. This group of ex elected officials, shyster lawyers and con artists make up the revolving door of access and sway that keeps the DC Scalawag Culture Preserves Scoundrels alive and expanding. Corporatist Lobbying Replaced a Free Market long ago. The Camelot dream has become the granddaddy of all extenders.

A Force That No Man Or Country, Can Resist

Reasons for the 'Political Correctness' in government, are many. Each contribute to the erosion of the body politik. Their sum total is that the culture and the direction in government intervention continue its unending march into a 'Brave New Land'. From all the factors that influence this metamorphosis, few recognize the most hideous of the lot. Is it the conflicts of race or ethnic differences? Or could it be the media's limiting the parameters of the discussion? How about the elitist educators who restrict and define free debate? No, none of these is the most prominent. All but the lone recluse is confronted with this influence, and few can escape its ability to alter events. Yes, Virginia it is the 'power of the pussy' . .

Political Toadies and a Broken Down System

All the Statesmen are dead. The worst of society rise to the top of the food chain. Habitual liars run for civic office and the most skilled prevaricator gain seniority. The shyster class runs roughshod over the jurisprudences for the benefit of the enablers of the corrupt criminal syndicate. Alas, public meetings still start with the pledge of allegiance, but the words no longer have meaning – the Republic is officially dead. The emperor in chief needs no consent to wage war; he is above all sanction. Mourning over the corpse will only get you on the no fly list.
